And also while the wave of games after L4D did saturate out the zombie game market, and the zombie element has been persistent in other game add-on modes, I’d say that in recent times the focus (thanks to Overwatch?) has been more on hero shooters rather than zombie experiences.
Not to say that it is fresh time to re-open the Zombie genre for all, just that I think audiences in general have had a break from Zombies for a while. By the time this game actually comes out, even more so.
That said, 100% all for a new twist or take on Zombies if it can be done… but I’ll take having a more polished and updated L4D style experience over worrying about enemies feeling fresh. Evolve was the first game since L4D that had that same rush while in a co-op and it’s that ability to create an exhilarating experience that I’m looking for more than anything. Just my opinion of course
